Historical Tweets for Pinoy Expats Blog Awards 2009
IM SHARING MY OWN HISTORICAL TWEETS DIRECTLY FROM “THE THINKER”, the sculpture masterpiece of Auguste Rodin in 1880. This is part of the ongoing nomination for the 2009 Pinoy Expats Blog Awards which this personal blog of mine is one of the nominees. The organiser, PEBA has successfully received the sponsorship of NOKIA thru Ovi.com.
The website, Ovi.com allows members to have their own email accounts, synchronise files from PC, including contacts, travel plans and calendars, or even share music and videos and access to numerous applications for videos and games. I also discovered thru Ovi’s blog that Nokia created a site called Green Explorer. According to Riitta Jantunen (author of the article, Keepin’ It Green), Green Explorer aims to “make a sustainable lifestyle easier for people.” She adds that it “is a sustainable lifestyle guide powered by Nokia, helping people to lead a greener lifestyle and discover the treasures around them. ”
The website has information on local water quality, recycling practices and public transporation; interesting discussions on the sustainable lifestyle. Finally, the site also include the World Wildlife Fund projects and UNESCO World Heritage sites around the world where members could post/write and share their travel experiences around these places.
On the other hand, Ovi also maintains journals thru Ovi Blog and Historial Tweets is being promoted. The Historical Tweets site encourages people to share their tweets or updates – a text-based posts of up to 140 characters in length as patterned in the popular social network, Twitter established in 2006.
Note: The photo was taken during my visit to Paris in September 2008. This plaster replica of “The Thinker” sculpture is found inside Musee d’Orsay. The original one was held in Musee Rodin. More than 20 copies are displayed in museums around the world in varying scales.
UPDATES: Below is the revised version of my Historical Ovi Tweets for better resolution (perspective) of the image of The Thinker.
